Once I read that jackfruit reminds some of bubble yum, I had a hunch that it wouldn’t disappoint. While I have to say that jackfruit is the most labor intensive fruit I have encountered, it is totally worth it. The best tip that I can share with you is to use coconut oil or any kind of vegetable oil to remove the sticky resin that you will get all over your hands and kitchen counter as you cut the fruit.
Here is some background info on the fruit and some great vegan recipe ideas for the unripened fruit.
